RIGS has invited applications for two regional representatives. One of the reps will cover Kent, Surrey and Sussex, the other will represent Yorkshire.

Trainee regional reps play an integral role within the BSGE and RIGS (Registrars in Gynaecological Surgery). They provide useful feedback and opinions, which can be incorporated into training. All regional reps feature on the website and actively participate in the evolution and development of RIGS, providing a support network to BSGE trainee members in the deaneries.

Inviting nominations BSGE trainee representatives Angharad Jones and Mikey Adamczyk said:

‘The RIGS regional rep is a key link between trainees and the BSGE; it is important in your role to be proactive and accessible to ensure trainees have the best experience.

‘Reps will be required to provide quarterly written updates on training opportunities within their deanary and volunteer to help with BSGE trainee activities such as courses or webinars.

If a RIGS regional rep fails to engage with the responsibilities of their role, they will forfeit their position.’

A RIGS regional trainee rep can be of any level (ST1-ST7 or SAS doctor) but must be a fully paid member of the BSGE.

If you are interested in this role, please email BSGE at bsge@rcog.org.uk with a brief biography, a summary of why you wish to represent your deanery (max 250 words) and a photo of yourself.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 14th March 2022
